I don't like working with plastic canvas - it reminds me too much of projects you did when you were 10 (or at least, what I did ;) So, I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this book.

And while my "fears" were realized with the plastic canvas (eek), I really did like the overall box patterns and the patchwork patterns. Though I don't think I'll be creating any boxes anytime soon, I would love to get this book again (it was through my library's interlibrary loan) to try some of the designs out.

I have been working in plastic canvas and Aida to make boxes for a while, but this book had some good tips which I had not thought to do. I would recommend this book whether you have worked in plastic canvas or not.
